We have been learning about Little Red Riding Hood. We decided to finish the term off with a picnic so we spent the morning making jam sandwiches and enjoyed eating them on the field with our friends. 

We have been building 'huff and puff' towers for The Big Bad Wolf to blow down. We counted how many puffs it took for them to fall over and the difference between the wooden bricks and the smaller cubes.

The Giant left us some magic beans so we planted them and they grew into jelly beans! We decided to that the Giant was kind so we wrote him thank you letters.

We have been learning to program the Bee Bots and move them around the mats.

We were set the challenge of making a daffodil using only tubes, paper plates, paper and straws.

We made spring flowers. We blew lots of bubbles using water, fairy liquid and paint. We put the paper on top of the bubbles to create the flower head. Then we cut it out and added a stem and some leaves


We have been down to The Jungle looking for signs of spring.

We have also been making our own blossom tree sculptures.

We made vehicles for our superheroes.

We had great fun moving like Spideman!

We have been celebrating Chinese New Year. We made Chinese dragons, lanterns and had a go at acting out the story


We also had a Chinese banquet. We made Chinese dumplings and ate them with noodles and prawn crackers.

We had a go at using chopsticks, it wasn't easy!

We have been learning about ourselves as superheroes and what we can do to look after ourselves to keep ourselves fit, strong and healthy.

We made sparklers using breadsticks, chocolate and sprinkles. 

We put paint into pots with a lollystick in it and put it in the freezer ready to make fireworks with when we went to The Jungle.

We used our frozen paints to paint fireworks and toasted breadsticks on the campfire.

We made our own pumpkin soup and bread today, it was delicious. We even roasted the pumpkin seeds and ate them, some of us tried them for the first time.



We became Explorers for the day and we travelled to the Rainforest to look for some animals. 

We've been in The Jungle finding out about Autumn.

We were pretending to be elephants walking on the Savannah.

We had a video call from Steve at Exmoor Zoo. He showed us some of the animals that he looks after at the Zoo.
